Orchestral Devices: BATTALION is cinematic brass re-imagined... Utilizing our brand new Orchestral Devices engine, BATTALION allows for both traditional orchestral scoring as well as hybrid brass sound design, all in one truly inspiring package!
Utilizing features such as a modern XY pad, quad multi-lane sequencers, extensive FX and sound shaping capabilities, and a wealth of included sound sources, BATTALION brings the force of epic brass to your fingertips. Quickly achieve cutting edge brass sounds and timbres by blending up to four sources with the XY pad interface, and with easy MIDI implementation for your controllers or pad control devices, blending the four sources in real time is a breeze. Our built-in sequencers allow for easily accessible melodic patterns, or go completely aleatoric and set the sequencer to 'random playback' for some truly unique FX not capable in most sample libraries.
BATTALION includes 135 unique sound sources, of which you can easily combine and layer into any of the four XY quadrants of the interface. Sound sources range from traditional brass articulations, a huge compliment of orchestral brass FX, and several banks of both hybrid sound design (taken from the acoustic content and then twisted and manipulated), as well as several banks of analog synth content which compliment brass in truly epic ways. Three mixes are available for all orchestral content (Close, Stage, and Full Mix), which helps dial in the precise amount of space and ambience to your track. 250 presets are also included in several categories to get your cinematic composition started.
The included sound sources categories are:
- Trumpet Solo
- Trumpet Ensemble
- French Horn Solo
- French Horn Ensemble
- Trombone Solo
- Trombone Ensemble
- Low Brass Ensemble
- Hybrid Sound Design
- Analog Synth
